passage carefully and answer the questions given
below it. Certain words have been printed in bold

Govind’s father was a rich landlord, who was
loved and respected by all his tenants. When he
died, he left large tracts of land to Govind. But
Govind did not spend a single day looking after
his land. He had a funny idea, that there existed a
magic potion which, if it was poured on any object
would turn it into gold. He spent all his time
trying to learn more about this potion. People took
advantage of him and cheated him. His wife grew
anxious. Given the amount of money Govind was
spending, she was sure that they would soon be
One day, a widely respected sage who had
been to the Himalayas came to their town. Govind
asked him about the potion. To his surprise the
sage answered. “I have learnt how to brew such a
potion. But it is a difficult process.” “Tell me !”
insisted Govind, hardly able to believe his luck.
“You have to collect the dew which settles on the
leaves of a banana tree every morning during
winter. There is a condition though. The tree
should be planted and watered regularly with your
own hands. Store the collected dew in an earthen
vessel and when you have five litres, bring it to
me. I will recite a sacred mantra to transform the
dew into the potion. A drop of the potion will be
sufficient to change any object into gold.”
Govind was worried “Winter is only for a few
months in the year. It will take me years to collect
the dew.” “You can plant as many trees as you
want” replied the sage. Govind went home and
after talking to his wife, began clearing the large
fields which had been lying vacant for years. He
planted rows of banana saplings. He tended them
with great care. His wife helped him too. She
would take the banana crop to market and get a
good price. Over the years the plantation grew and
finally after six years Govind had five litres of
dew. He went to the sage who smiled, uttered a
mantra and sprinkled a few drops of dew on a
copper vessel. To Govind’s dismay, nothing
happened. “You have cheated me !” he shouted at
the sage.
The sage however smiled. Govind’s wife then
came forward with a box. The sage opened it and
revealed stack of gold coins inside. Turning to
Govind he said. “You worked hard on your land
and created a planation. Your wife sold the
produce in the market. It was your hard work

you this earlier, you would not have listened.”
